News - Men’s County Foursomes Final
Lutterworth Golf Club secured a resounding victory over local rivals Whetstone Golf Club in the 2016 County Mens Foursomes Final held over 36 holes at Willesley Park Golf Club this Sunday. The pairings of Chris Abbott with Andrew Skerratt and Richard Harris with Joe Hack had victory secured well before the final holes.
In the first match Chris and Andrew were 7 up after 10 holes but the momentum was with Whetstone at the end of the first 18 holes and they had pulled it back to just 5 down at the break. In the second round they continued this fight back winning 3 of the first 4 holes to be only two down. From there on holes were exchanged and when the match was conceded Lutterworth were still 2 up.
In the second match it was a much closer start to the first round but by winning the 17th and 18th holes Lutterworth went into the break 4 up. Despite losing a couple of holes in the second round, Lutterworth continued to pull away and magnificent birdies at the 8th and 14th holes pushed the team close to victory and when the match was conceded Richard and Joe were 9 holes up.
Our thanks go to Matt Horton who played in the first round and Jay Sheridan who played throughout apart from the final when sadly he had to withdraw due to injury.
